this is my first time working with IIS so bear with me here.
I set up IIS 6 on a Windows Server 2003 installation on an old PowerEdge 600sc to play around with.
I'm trying to link multiple domains to the site, using the free .tk domain names. For example SiteA.tk and SiteB.tk. I have my web content set up on D:/Web and the files for the two separate sites in subdirectories - D:/Web/SiteA and D:/Web/siteB. I have the default file iisstart.htm in D:/Web.
I have forwarding set up that forwards from my network IP [MyIP] to the server with no problem. So if I go to [MyIP] it pulls up the default page in D:/Web. If I go to [MyIP]/SiteA it pulls up the default page in D:/Web/SiteA, same for SiteB.
When I create a new site through IIS, for example for SiteA, I keep the default IP Address of the server, keep the TCP Port set to 80, set the home directory to D:/Web/SiteA and add host header values for www.SiteA.tk and SiteA.tk. Then when setting up the domain SiteA.tk, I tell it to forward to the [MyIP].
From what I understand of host header values, going to SiteA.tk should take me to the default page in my SiteA directory. But instead, it always returns the default page in my main directory, D:/Web.
I've made the pages unique - so the problem isn't that I'm confusing the same pages. I've also tried setting my domain name to forward to [MyIP]/SiteA and [MyIP]/SiteB, but it also returns the same old default page every time.
I bet this is something simple I'm missing - thanks for any advice in advance.
